The aim of this study was to evaluate the anti-oxidant and anti-choline esterase activity of the stem, barks and leaves of the plant V. cinerea. The stems, barks and the leaves of the plant V.Cineria was sun dried and extracted using methanol. The anti-oxidant activity of the crude methanolic extract was measured by the DPPH free radical scavenging activity. The crude methanolic extract showed significant anti-oxidant activity by the DPPH free radical scavenging method. Evaluation of ChEs enzyme activity of the crude methanolic extract was done by Ellman method. The methanolic extract of V. cinerea leaves exerted significant AChE and BChE inhibitory effects.
